oddly enough, that Untitled LP was my real intro. to the Byrds (beyond of course what i managed to hear on AM/FM radio, the trippy-poppy hits such as Tambourine Man, Turn Turn Turn, etc.), and it remains the only album i ever owned by them, for years Lover of the Bayou was thrown onto pretty much every mix tape i ever assembled, just fantastic

Arb: That Byrds LP stood out from all the rest by covering a lot of musical ground, I loved that live side, but also liked Truck Stop Girl and Chestnut Mare.

I know you're probably hip to it, but Tom Petty and Mudcrutch have done a version of Lover of the Bayou which has the same vibe.

wow ... WOW, what an amazing cover! and though i'm a fan of Petty, i admit to not having updated my collection of his music since late 80s/early 90s material, so i did NOT know about that cover, but he's definitely one of the few mainstream artists i actually have a decent amount of respect for ... now, where's my vinyl copy of Damn the Torpedos :)

Mudcrutch is one of the best shows I've been to in years - they killed Lover on the Bayou and Crystal River has Benmont Tench and Mike Campell doing a full on Keith/Jer interaction.

Thanks for the link. LOVE IT.

Thanks for the exposure to this stuff guys...

Didnt know much, and was bummed while reading up on him (just wiki):

"...His (ClWhite) final road jaunt was a three-date "country-rock" package tour with the likes of Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris, Sneaky Pete Kleinow, and Chris Etheridge. Even though they had presumably been acquainted with one another in the past, Parsons and White would develop a fast friendship after what was by all accounts a very acrimonious re-acquaintance.

White died on July 15, 1973[3] after being struck by a drunk driver. The accident occurred shortly after 2 a.m., while he and his brother Roland were loading equipment into their car following a spur-of-the moment reunion gig of the Colonels.[4] Especially shaken by his death was Gram Parsons, who would lead a singalong of "Farther Along" at the funeral service and conceive his final song before his own death, "In My Hour of Darkness," as a partial tribute to White..."
